“Meal prep and I have a love-hate relationship. I really enjoy it throughout the week, because it makes my life easier. It allows me to sleep a little later, get out of the house faster, and focus on homework because I don’t have to worry about what I should make for my next meal.”

“Meal Prep Goals

  • Breakfast: An easy, grab-and-go option that provides a jolt of protein in the morning to get us going and keep us going until lunch (five days).
  • Lunch: Feel-good choices that are filled with vegetables but also provide a big dose of protein. They should be packable (five days).
  • Dinner: Fast, high-protein meals that we can toss together without much effort or thought (four days).
  • Nutritional Goals: Roughly 100 grams of protein a day balanced by plenty of vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats.”

“To make hitting your protein goal easy during the week we have compiled 18 High Protein Meal Prep Recipes that require only a few ingredients and minimal time. Pair them with your favorite carb and healthy fat for a well-rounded meal.

PRO TIP: Switch up the protein to vary the meals. If something calls for steak,  but you prefer chicken or just need to add a little variety, GO FOR IT! Also, any vegetarian/vegan protein option can be subbed in for eggs, fish, chicken or steak! The combinations are endless, so have fun!”

“Protein is a crucial nutrient for every part of your body, and there are plenty of reasons you might want to add more of it to your breakfast, lunch, and dinner. “In numerous studies, a high-protein breakfast habit has been linked to weight management or weight loss,” Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, CSSD, a New York City- and Los Angeles-based performance nutritionist, told Prevention previously. “Protein is filling, and triggers the release of satiety hormones that blunt appetite.” The nutrient will also help you stay more alert and energized throughout the day.”
